When it comes to the best selfies around, celebrities seem to know the secrets. They always seem to look perfect even in bed with morning hair and no makeup. But how do they do it? While us mere mortals struggle to get a decent picture even with 15 pounds of makeup and a full styled head of hair yet we still come out looking like a hippo, they seem to look effortlessly fabulous.
These celebrities have the formula down. All it takes is a few know-how’s of what to do, and you’ll be pumping out great selfies in no time. Here are the tricks of the trade for you to get started with.
A Quality Camera
First thing is first. You are going to need a quality camera. This means using a pro camera with a great lens that is going to make you look like you just stepped onto the cover of Vogue Magazine. If this isn’t in your budget, try opting for a phone which is equipped with a great camera.
If you aren’t sure which phones are the best choices, you can do some research online and compare. Usually, you will want one with 12 megapixels or higher. This will ensure that you come out looking crisp and clear without grain or blur making your photos look amateur.
Photo Editing Software
Ever notice how these celebrities never have fine lines or wrinkles in their selfies? This isn’t because they magically fell out of bed looking this way. They are definitely getting technological assistance hiding those imperfections and flaws.
You will want to make sure that you use an editing software which naturally blurs out your fine lines and spots and dots without looking overly edited. You can find several options on your phone within the app store, or if you really want to get fancy you can use a more advanced desktop application like Photoshop.
Knowing Your Angles
One of the best ways to get a good selfie is to know your angles. This means lots of practice! Try taking photos from a variety of directions, using different arms, lengths, cameras, mirrors, and faces.
Once you start to get a feel for exactly what your best poses are for your features and how to capture them, you will take selfies effortlessly.
Lighting Is Everything
One of the most effective ways to get a good selfie is to make sure that you have a great lighting. Your face should be well lit and the light should be hitting you from above not from below. This way you aren’t highlighting the bottom of your face which can accentuate the wrinkles and darkness under your eyes and double chin.
